Can you please post on your web page, and newsletter, and let the club members know that Jackson Hobby Shop is up for sale. The business was started in 1969 ,a lucrative hobby shop and one of the oldest one in NJ. I will be retiring in March of 2018 because of medical reasons. The business is up for sale for $200,000 firm. Any one that is interested can contact Brad Palmer, at Crown Business Brokers, at (908)364-6920 or email him brad.palmer1@aol.com. Anyone that has ever been to the shop knows we have an extensive amount of inventory for all facets of the hobby industry. For all of my customers and friends, which are more like family, this is a sad time in my life and one that I am sorry to see happen.

Thanks again for all the wonderful years this has given me. It's been my pleasure to serve you.

As an update, a buyer has not been found and the shop's stated last day will be January 18. Unfortunately, I never spent much time in this shop, as I live at the other end of the county and during the time I was buying the most equipment there were several other closer shops, all since closed. I did just recently re-paint and re-letter a K-line switcher I bought there years ago as an Air Force engine, as a gift to my son who is an Airman, along with several AF freight cars. He just ran that set under his first Christmas tree in his new house. In a quote in a local newspaper, Mr. Gustafson states that the sale/closing is due to age and health, with his grown sons having careers of their own. I wish him good luck and will try to stop in before he closes.
